Believe it or not, summer is coming to an end and the beginning of the school year is quickly approaching! As a parent, the back to school season can be extremely overwhelming… The shopping, planning, and organizing of kids takes up a lot of time and energy. While every child and family is different, I remember when my daughter was in school, she always preferred to bring her lunch from home. I loved making Kennedy’s lunch with a well rounded meal all wrapped up in an adorable lunch box in the early days then on to a brown paper bag in the later years. I guess she was too cool for a lunch box OR it just would not fit in her backpack filled with endless books, and supplies.
Although I did love making her lunch each day there was the added time I had to factor in to complete this task… especially on those busy mornings. I remember it all too well. However, I/we did learn to start the process the evening before to make mornings run much more smoothly. I would add a little note each day, but I love these cute little cards and stickers that can easily be slipped into your child’s lunch. So sweet! Today I’m sharing my guide to back to school lunch essentials, and the little things that can make mornings much easier.
I hope you found these lunch essentials helpful and happy back to school friends!
